Climate Change

As a founding participant of the Forest Climate Working Group (FCWG), NASF helps develop recommendations for ensuring forests have a strong role in climate legislation. National policy related to climate change can improve the contribution of the forest sector in reducing greenhouse gas levels and can help provide resources to help forests adapt to changing conditions. State forestry agencies have a significant stake in the outcomes of these decisions as they directly manage and protect millions of acres of state forests and assist private landowners in the management of nearly two-thirds of the forestland in the U.S.
